Virginia held a legislative election on November 7, 2017. It appears the new House of Delegates includes 51 Republicans and 49 Democrats. In the 94th district, the tally was: Republican David Yancey 11,601; Democrat Shelly Simonds 11,591; Libertarian Michael Bartley 675.
If Democrats had prevailed in the 94th district, the House of Delegates would have been organized on a bi-partisan sharing agreement. Unlike the State Senate, where the Lieutenant Governor (a Democrat) could break any tie, there is no easy mechanism for the House to avoid a tie. In similar cases in other states, the lower chamber ends up with an agreement for the two major parties to share power equally, sometimes with co-speakers. Thanks to Thomas Jones for this news.
